Liliputi has recently released new designs and updated their Liliputi Buckle Carriers and they are gorgeous! I received a hand-embroidered Liliputi Buckle Carrier in Graphit color from their beautiful Matyo line. I am so impressed with these quality hand-made, organic and ergonomically designed buckle baby carrier which function wonderfully and look beautiful. Liliputi makes baby wearing stylish with their fun designs!
Liliputi is based in Hungary and the hand-embroidery on their Matyo line (desgined by Matyodesign) is the centuries-old traditional Matyo style which is just beautiful! The colors and detailing are stunning and add to the sophisticated, stylish look of these excellent carriers. The carriers are carefully constructed in the heart of Europe and made with organic high quality materials. The creators of Liliputi are passionate about the many benefits of baby wearing (and especially skin to skin baby wearing) for mom and baby and so they offer several different styles of baby carriers including wraps, slings, and the in between mei-tai. Their website offers helpful advice for choosing the right carrier for you depending on you and your baby's needs and preferences.
I personally like the Liliputi Buckle Carriers because I find them so easy to use when I'm in a hurry and it grows with my child allowing me to get maximum use out of it because I can use it for a newborn as well as a toddler (up to about 44lbs)! Currently I am using this to carry my 20 month old on my back (since my pregnant belly gets in the way of front carry!). Lilliputi baby carriers are designed to support healthy hip development of your growing child by making the seating easy to adjust as your child grows keeping your child in the proper ergonomic "M" seating position at every stage. I have attached the seat extenders for my toddler since he is larger now so that he is in the proper seating position. When my newborn arrives this fall I will be able to carry her cradled skin to skin against my chest in the front carry position because this carrier also comes with an infant seat insert (see photo below). There is also a removable hood which offers head support and shade for napping infants. Both of these are very easy to attach or remove, as well as the seat extenders which zip onto the sides as seen in the photo below.
As well as being comfortable and anatomically supportive for my babies I appreciate the support that the buckle carrier provides for me and my bad back. I was surprised just how comfortable it is to carry my 23lb toddler around with this carrier (even being pregnant)! The design of the carrier distributes baby's weight appropriately across my shoulders and hips and the waist belt is snug and supportive on my lower back fitting well on my hips below my belly. When front carrying you can also cross the straps across your back for even more upper back support (which I prefer for a front carry). The versatility of the buckle carrier is great especially when my husband and I trade off baby carrying and I found it very simple to adjust the straps as needed for proper fit and positioning on the parent and child. Learning how to wear your child in different positions, especially learning to wear them on your back without having help getting them in the carrier seems tricky at first but I found the instructional videos on Liliputi's website and instruction manual very helpful for figuring it out quickly and easily. Just practice a couple times to get comfortable with how it works and how to adjust the straps and you'll be good to go!
Of the several types of baby carriers I've tried Liliputi Buckle carrier is my favorite. I found very comfortable for me and my little one. My toddler seems to be more content in this carrier and for longer periods of time compared to other carriers I've used. Also when not in use the Liliputi Buckle Carrier comes with a cloth draw-string bag which it folds up nicely into for convenient storing. I find this is handy while traveling especially when we're navigating airports because once you're on the plane it can be stored away compact and neatly.
If you're looking for an ergonomically designed baby carrier that is easy to use and can be used for an infant as well as a toddler the Liliputi Buckle Carrier is a great option. They come in many attractive colors and designs so browse through their website and find one that expresses your personal style and taste!
